A Message from a Shamisen player
Tsuyoshi Tomoyama : I started to play Tsugaru-shamisen when I was a college student. I have been playing shamisen mainly in Fukuoka. I became a member of NORIDAN which is a Korean entertainment company in 2012 and played many types of songs for 2 years in Korea. If the country is different, so is the culture, and it can be said for music and musical instruments. I enjoyed interacting with various people through music and musical instruments there. Let’s try shamisen and enjoy Japanese culture together!
